The search for 6-month-old Ember Graham is now in its fifth day, and investigators say Ember's father, Matthew Graham, has been uncooperative during the investigation.

Matthew Graham became a person of interest in his daughter's disappearance after giving inconsistent statements to investigators. He reported the baby missing Thursday morning, saying he last saw her in her crib Wednesday night. According to the sheriff's office, he has not made any effort to clear his name.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said Monday that due to Matthew Graham's inconsistent statements and layout of property, it is "highly improbable" that Ember was abducted. Bosenko also said he expects to submit a case against Matthew Graham to the District Attorney's office soon.

The infant's mother, Jamie Graham, says she's focused on finding the girl and has seen no evidence her husband did anything wrong.

More than 90 law enforcement search and rescue personnel are scouring the areas around Clear Creek Road, and portions of Cloverdale Road in Happy Valley and in the south Redding area.

Shasta County Secret Witness has posted a $10,000 reward for anyone who can provide information on Ember Graham's whereabouts or information about what lead to her disappearance.
